NEW YORK/GENEVA/MOSCOW — U.S. President Joe Biden held his first summit with Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin on Wednesday in Geneva, agreeing to set up new frameworks of dialogue over arms control and cybersecurity.

The two sides also agreed to allow their respective ambassadors to return to their posts.
